What is propecia generic (finasteride)

Propecia has finasteride (a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor) as its active ingredient. This drug is used in the treatment of male pattern hair loss and achieves its effect by inhibiting the enzyme that converts testosterone to its active form, dihydrotestosterone. It is the latter form of testosterone that causes male pattern baldness. Propecia can have varying effects in different people. For many, it halts hair loss, but for some, it also stimulates the growth of new hair. The drug is also used in the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia because dihydrotestosterone also triggers enlargement of the prostate gland.

Brand-name Propecia is available as 1mg tablets that are tan colored and film-coated with a characteristic octagonal shape while the generic versions of the drug may look different.

How to Use Propecia

The recommended dosage is one 1mg Propecia pill per day, taken at a fixed time every day. Based on other factors like underlying renal or liver diseases, your doctor might adjust the dosage.

The tablets are taken orally and their action is not altered by the presence of food in the digestive system.

Never should you take a double dose of Propecia, even if you missed taking the pills the previous day.

It takes about three months of therapy before the effect of treatment with Propecia becomes visible. And when the drug is stopped, the new hair it triggered to grow will most likely wither off in a year.

Who Shouldn’t Take Propecia

The drug is contraindicated for use in children, women, and people who are allergic to finasteride or any other ingredients of Propecia.

The Possible Side Effects of Propecia

Some of the users of Propecia have experienced reduced amounts of ejaculate and low sex drive. Other side effects that could be experienced are breast tenderness and breast enlargement. In a small percentage of the users, a rash accompanies the use of Propecia. In case you experience the side effects that might suggest an allergic reaction such as itching, hives and swollen lips, stop taking the drug and seek a doctor’s attention immediately. Moreover, finasteride is known to cause serious health problems in pregnant women including miscarriage and birth deformities. Thus, it should never be taken or even handled by pregnant women because it may even be absorbed through skin.

Overdose

When taken in amounts exceeding the recommended doses, Propecia can produce serious adverse reactions, and one should seek immediate medical care when an overdose is suspected. As of now, there is no defined antidote for finasteride overdose.
